I know that this could also go in another forum, but I believe that this particular doctrine and its belief or lack of belief plays a key role in our acceptance of Bible translations. I do not pose this to open up and MV vs. KJVO debate, but to understand the level of understanding of what God meant when He promised to preserve His Word. Thus, My question. I have read where some believe that when they hold the Bible (I think this person was KJVO) he actually held God in his hands. I have heard men say from the pulpit that God inspired the translators of the KJV so that the Greek and Hebrew could be corrected. I have also heard other men say that God inspired the KJV just as He inspired their sermon that they were preaching at that moment. I have also heard men insinuate that God did not need to preserve His Word any longer after the KJV was translated or that inspiration did not end until the KJV was completed. In light of this, where do you stand on the doctrine of the Preservation of God's Word? Is it still in progress? Did it stop with the KJV? Did God only quit preserving for those of us that speak English? Should all other translations come from the KJV because it was inspired and preserved and no other document is or has been? Do you even believe in the doctrine of Preservation? Again, I don't want to start a huge hairy debate over KJVO vs. MV but I would like to know if I am the only one teaching their church that God is preserving His Word like the scriptures say. I look forward to reading your responses.
